Look Back/ Look Forward

Well - another perfectly good month has whizzed by...wow!  May already!

April was a good critter month:

  • Winston got spoiled by his Easter buddy Cupcake
  • Violet continued to be super stable on her medication!!  WOOT!!
  • Puppies had their first grooming sessions
  • The Zoo got spoiled on Easter with treats and new toys
  • We survived multiple days of rain which gave everyone a bad case of cabin fever
  • We started crate training for the pups
  • We started impulse training for the pups
All in all it was a good month - good health and happy fur kids.  Can't ask for more than that.

Looking forward to May:

  • Violet will have her next glucose check on the 11th
  • We will continue both the crate training and the impulse exercises with the pups
  • We will continue our quest for deep cleaning in critterland - I am determined!!  :)
  • Kitties will be due for vetting again - not sure this will happen in May
  • Winston is technically due at the end of May for his annual house call from the vet - his appointment is scheduled for June 7th
  • Emma is on watch - she has what feels like a lipoma on her side.  These fatty tumors are fairly common in dogs and are harmless.  We have a size reference and will keep a close eye on it.  If it grows or changes at all we will take her in.  In the meantime I have a holistic product we have used in the past that I will start her on.
  • Ferrets are doing just great.  Theo is next in line for his health and wellness blood panel.  Not sure that will happen in May either - depends on how things go....

I can't believe it's May!
